This was not an issue until v3.57 and beyond. It looks like lines are written on top of each other. Most forms are unreadable and you see or fill in any online forms. I … (read more)

This was not an issue until v3.57 and beyond. It looks like lines are written on top of each other. Most forms are unreadable and you see or fill in any online forms. I could easily provide many screen shots.Seveal versions ago Mozilla sent me an add-on that completely fixed the issue. I cannot remember the name of the add-on and have exhausted my search. But it exists. Mozilla tech guy responded to my question with a link. Unfortunately, I can't find it any longer. He said it had to do with high dpi settings and the 16x9 format of the Samsung I use as a monitor.

In 3.6, when you clicked on the Firefox icon in the Windows taskbar, you'd be switched to Firefox. Now, in 4.0b, when you click the logo, it displays the tabs you have open and you have to choose on to return to Firefox. It slows down switching between windows. Is there a setting, in Firefox, or windows to change it back to the way it used to work?

I have been excited to move up to 4.x and ever since, it has crashed from the git-go. I have multiple tabs as homepage, and the three others seem to load, sometimes the first one does- but not before I cannot use the browser. I cannot input or use the mouse. The screen does not draw. It locks up. I used the profile.splite.old suggestion... same result.

When I navigate (click on) to a bookmark in either the bookmarks folder or in a folder on my bookmarks bar it remains highlighted when I reopen those folders until I mouse over it again. This happens all the time to the point that I can have dozens of bookmarks highlighted in a browsing session.

I use Windows 7 Home Premium and Firefox 4 Beta 2.

When I visit blogs and other websites that frequently use embedded Youtube videos, or embedded video from other sites, the controls don't work in Firefox 4 Beta. Any time you click the volume, slider or any other control at the bottom it instead opens up the video's origin page in a new tab.

When I have been using Firefox for about 30 minutes or more, it causes my computer to overheat hardcore, with the memory usage up to 60% or more and sometimes over 700,000k. The computer gets so hot that it scalds my skin. I have not experienced this problem while using IE or Opera, and it's not just certain websites on Firefox, it's all websites, no matter if I'm watching a video or just browsing text. It happened on my past 3 computers but thought it was just a problem with the brand of laptop I was using. Is Firefox known to have a big problem with memory leak or is this just me? If so, I'll have to uninstall it from every computer at work... it's unprofessional =/.
